Kane Brown

Kane Brown is a multiracial singer with a genre-bending approach to country music helped shift the sound of modern country in the late 2010s. Initially attracted to R&B, he later embraced country, and his first single, “Don’t Go City on Me,” went viral upon release in 2014. By 2016, Brown had signed with RCA and issued his full-length debut Kane Brown. He began crossing over to the pop charts with “What Ifs” (featuring Lauren Alaina) and “Heaven,” both of which landed in the Top 40. Brown’s, second album 2018’s Experiment, topped the Billboard 200 and spawned a trio of country hits with “Lose It,” “Good as You,” and “Homesick.” In keeping with his boundary-breaking approach, Brown has also paired for collaborations with DJ Marshmello and singer Khalid.

Even before signing his record deal in early 2016, rising star Kane Brown had already established a passionate online following in the millions. Almost immediately, the RCA Nashville/Zone 4 singer/songwriter was making chart history with the release of Chapter 1, which became the highest-debuting country EP of the Nielsen SoundScan era and featured the RIAA Gold-certified “Used to Love You Sober.” His Kane Brown full-length released in December 2016, debuting at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums and Top 10 on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart. Country’s #1 best-selling new-artist album debut since 2014, Kane Brown also claimed the #4 spot as the best-selling new-artist album debut of 2016, in any genre, and launched the Platinum-certified smash “What Ifs,” featuring Lauren Alaina. The October 6, 2017, release of the 15-song Kane Brown DeluXe Edition builds on that success with four new tracks including “Setting the Night on Fire—a duet with Brown’s hero and RCA labelmate Chris Young—and “Found You,” a track that entered Billboard’s Country Digital Song Sales chart at #1. Earlier this year, Brown impressively earned his first ACM award nomination as New Male Vocalist of the Year, as well as a CMT Music Awards Breakthrough Video of the Year nod for “Used to Love You Sober.” In addition to headlining his own series of sold-out tour dates, Brown was tapped for Florida Georgia Line’s 2016 summer tour and is currently a special guest on Jason Aldean’s They Don’t Know Tour. Beyond his flourishing music career—and inspired by his personal eXperiences and a desire to lend his voice as a platform—Brown recently partnered with Make Room, the nation’s leading organization addressing the rental housing crisis in the United States.
